~ The Loss ~
"We lost," Greg said firmly. "How did we lose? That bet should've been a sure thing."
"You know your wife is going to disown you now, right?" I shuffled nervously, my hands glued into my pockets from the unbearable heat.
Greg frowned at me. "I'll find a way out of this mess. Somehow, some way. I don't want to lose her. I CAN'T lose her." He began mumbling and sweating profusely.
Worried about him, all I wanted to do was reassure him. The words stuck in my throat - I felt like we were out in the Sahara. I was out a lot of money, too. But I didn't have a wife - I only had myself to worry about.
Pacing back and forth, Greg looked too pale for being out in the sun all day. I looked up - and saw his wife marching our way.

Not my best work, but I was in a hurry, eep.
